In September this year I finally realised a life long dream to travel with my job. I went all the way to York after being commissioned by SAS to work on a job for Student Castle! These student accommodation providers asked me to draw on their white washed walls to make the marketing suite come […]
For Mother’s day this year Chanel commissioned lucky me to illustrate complimentary gift cards. I perched in-store at their Covent Garden beauty pop-up (which now probably qualifies as a shop since it has been there for over a year) drawing and painting three chosen designs. Of these the Chanel No5 perfume bottle proved most popular […]
Thrilled to have been asked to be resident illustrator for Country living’s newly designed magazine. I have regular spots, plus illustrations that change each month, to draw. They are a fantastic team to work with and my Mum could not be prouder! I’m now an expert on seasonal flowers and am improving my gardening skills with […]
I recently travelled to Tokyo, Japan. Whilst wandering the bookshop of the Mori Art Museum, after seeing an incredible Andy Warhol retrospective, I stumbled across Beyond Magazine. I illustrated the crafted range for Lexus and there the products were, in full colour publishing loveliness. I had my 15 minutes of fame right there that night!
Towards the end of last year (2013) I was lucky enough to be commissioned by two amazing women. One in the North and one in the East! Both had blank canvases that I was allowed to put my stamp on. Ruth of N1 fame is a great friend of mine and so we leant her […]
What a blast! NYC is Christmas mad this time of year and Jo shopped till she dropped, ate a lot of Hershey Kisses and even has some meetings Stateside. Check back in the NY after she has digested all this visual information and produced some New York themed illustration…
Great commission for the Stylist for Jo Bird this week. Drawing some of her favourite things…yup, sweeties and chocolate. What more could a girl want? Jo was asked to create a fantasy chocolate box containing the magazine staff’s number one choices. Her own personal all time favourite (since you asked) would be a box of seashells […]
Jo Bird is still smiling when she travels into London. The FCUK campaign is everywhere on tubes, bus posters and billboards. She even spotted some happy shoppers with FCUK carrier bags bearing the illustration too!
Jo has recently been working in collaboration with a design agency to bring you a new look to Tesco’s finest range. She was commissioned to work on lots of very tasty and inspiring new dips and vegetable dishes. Below is the first dip she got her hands on straight of the shelves in her local […]
Using the black and white branding of the restaurant logo, Jo produced a kitchen wall mural on the feature wall. This works by extending the space, whilst making the customer feel at ease by drawing up a chair to sit next to the view.
